Last week flew by for us! We were all home on Monday. Justin and I had the day off, and the three kids were all home with colds and were not feeling well. I mentioned in the last post that we found out that day that Jaxon had RSV. I stayed home with him on Tuesday and the girls went to daycare. Jayla woke up with a fever on Wednesday, so Justin stayed home with both Jayla and Jaxon. It's a lot of work taking care of those two when they are healthy - it was a bit of a crazy day for him since both of them were sick! Both of them were feeling better and went to daycare on Thursday on Friday.
Jordyn was sad on Wednesday morning when she realized that Jayla and Jaxon were staying home with Daddy for the day. I cheered her up by telling her she could go grocery shopping with me - just the two of us. She was so excited! :) It was the first thing she told her teacher when I dropped her off. After school we went shopping. She had a smile the entire time we shopped, and was cracking everyone up that walked by us. I am glad that Jordyn and I had a little time to spend together just the two of us!
On Thursday we got quite a bit of snow - finally! I sure wasn't wanting it, but I know the girls have been wanting snow! I brought some inside to play with. It was pretty nice outside, but since everyone was battling colds, we didn't want them outside. Normally the girls love to play with snow inside, but they didn't have a ton of interest this time. They both touched it once and then were done.
Jaxon's RSV hasn't been nearly as bad as when the girls had it. Thank goodness! He's definitely not over it though. We just finished his fourth antibitiotic on Friday for his ear infection and we continue to do nebs about 4 times a day. He was tugging at his ears today though, so I am sure that the infection is still here. Until the RSV goes away, the infection is probably there to stay. Poor thing - he has has it since January 13 (or at least that is the date that it was diagnosed). Thankfully he's been pretty happy through it all!
We didn't do a whole lot on Friday night. On Saturday morning we headed to the baby shower that we were throwing for my sister-in-law, Devin! I didn't do a very good job of taking pictures though. Trying to keep up with all three kiddos wasn't easy. I'm so thankful that I had lots of help!
Here's the diaper cake and two cupcakes (although they don't really look like cupcakes) that I made for Devin ...
Auntie Kiki and Jayla ...
Auntie Kandi and Jordyn ...
Jayla had fun running around!
The girls in our family!
One more picture of Jordyn at the shower ...
We can't wait for the twins to arrive! :)
After the shower we headed to my parents' house. The guys were hanging out there. We spent the rest of the afternoon/evening there. We had lots of fun - and my mom made one of my favorite meals that I don't think I had eaten in 15 years ... fleish kuekla. YUM!!! Justin had never had them. They are so good, but they take a long time to make! Thanks, Mom, for making them!
Our kids actually slept quite well on Saturday night - at least compared to what they have been sleeping. Jayla woke up pretty fussy though, so we decided to get her into acute care. We wanted to make sure there wasn't an ear infection. She has tubes in her ears, so if there is an infection the ears would be draining - unless the tubes were blocked - or maybe they had fallen out and we didn't know it. She does not have an ear infection and the RSV and Influenza tests were negative (yeah!) but instead she has bronchitis. Ugh. Poor thing. She seemed to be doing better though once we got the antibiotic in her today and started her on neb treatments as well. She loves the neb treatments and wants to do it all by herself!
We have been pretty fortunate that overall, our kids have been healthy. Other than Jayla missing a half day in October, our kids have not missed daycare since August. Jaxon has had the ongoing ear infection too, but other than that we have been healthy! We are hopeful that the kids will all feel better soon! :)
Leaving with you this cutie!
